Buddhist Thought: Anger

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. Buddha

I love this quote although I often ignore it.

When you are in anger, and you express it towards someone, it is usually you that gets angry and wound up.
Buddha speaks wisely comparing anger with a piece of hot coal.

You throw it at someone and whilst doing so, you burn your hands.

The better way is to let the coal cool down, pick it up and it falls to dust.

Have a wonderful day,
Buddha bless,
